DFA engines don't typically (if ever) backtrack. Microsoft's is an NFA engine.

DFA engines are faster, but take longer to compile and support less kinds of matching. Basically DFAs support standard regex ()[^-]*?. but nothing fancy like lazy matching** or atomic zero width assertions.

** apparently someone on CP has produced a research DFA regex engine that can do lazy matches by engaging in some sorcery in the way it builds the states for the machines, but typically they cannot.
